Snap!
Something cracks deep in my tummy.
Tumbling, rumbling like a hard, sour, unripe pear.

Whoosh!
A roman candle rocket blasts up to my chest on magnesium flames.
Cheeks sizzle like a lobster on a hot plate.
Chilli burns through every pore.

Belly bubbling goes ballistic.
White-hot lava surges through my bones.
Seething, simmering,
I grind my teeth.
I writhe. I hiss.

An electric eel sparks through my veins.
A million billion shocks through every cell.
I’ll explode.
Shatter like a glass droplet.
I am furious, fierce, ferocious.

Enough of your oshkoshery!

I point my finger…

No looking back.
